Verizon has confirmed that it will include FaceTime over cellular on all its data plans, reports the WSJ.

All Verizon Wireless customers will be permitted to use the data-intensive application with no additional charges, including those remaining on unlimited data plans, according to a company spokeswoman.

In contrast, AT&T is requiring subscribers to sign up for its data-sharing plans to use FaceTime over cellular. Sprint Nextel Corp. has said it wouldn't place limits on FaceTime use.

Apple is set to launch iOS 6 which will enable the new FaceTime functionality on September 19th.

How does AT&T justify their restriction when their competition has none?

I think you're the "dumb fuck". You can't see that it was a rhetorical question.

I've never jail broken my phone before. Does it slow down functionality at all?

i think apple did this on purpose just to have enough time to make better "revolutionary" iPhone 6 this is probably a strategy just to surprise us with the "iPhone 6" just stick with apple a little bit longer and see what they can come up with.
